Bird Nest 2009

We have another pair of birds nesting on our porch light, just like last year. Just on a different porch light! I won't get as many pictures this year because the porch light on this house is much higher then the old house!

I'll continue to update this post just like I did last year!

Slowly but Surely

Slowly but surely that is how the house is coming along. Figuring out where everything goes, what colors walls should be, and what new things we need to acquire.... Its been a trip that's for sure! I'll share more pictures of the house when we have it close to complete... But for now you'll have to be happy with a picture of Jaycob helping take down tape!

PA Trip

We took a mini vacation to G-ma and Pop-Pop's in PA for the holiday. The kids were so excited to go... So excited that they wouldn't stop asking us if we were there yet!! Wow was that annoying! But we got there safe and sound and the kids even got to ride their bikes on Pop-Pop's road!
We actually realized during this ride that Jaycob does in deed need a bigger bike. So off to Wal-mart we went! Though we bought it in PA he never did really get to ride it so I have no pictures. But he loves his new big red bike!

We also got a chance to go visit Great Grandma for her birthday where the kids chased bubbles with Cousin L!

Aby's Nose

I've gotten a few questions about what Abygail did. So the short of it is: She was running down a LONG concrete handicap ramp, fell, & her face caught her. She didn't have a scratch on her hands or knees. We were surprised that all scabs came off by the following Tuesday! Her nose is still quite pink where it was and I think its still a bit tender, but I think she'll be fine.

Funny note: Through it all she kept calling the scabs scales!! Even this morning she asked about her scales and it took me a minute to figure out what she was talking about!

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

Yep, we went to the zoo! We drove up to the Metro in a line with a couple other moms from our area only to meet up at the zoo with about 10+ more moms from other areas! We got to actually ride the Metro which I think was the kids favorite part, though it made me realize how much of a country girl I really am. All the mess of the Metro, I was completely lost! Thankfully, we had someone with us that does it often! Ok now to the pictures because I know thats all you really care about!

Riding the Metro with Breanna (her and Jaycob skipped school to make this trip!)

Awaiting everyone to gather and kids to use potties before we head off to see some animals!!

Some Flamingos for Pop-Pop! And the tiger!
Lion and kids with a tiger!

If you look really close the mama in the second picture is holding a tiny baby!

I loved this picture of a handful of the kids we went with!
